Walnut Creek, Calif. -

ARIZONA STATE junior goalkeeper Briana Silvestri has been named Pac-10 Player of the Week for Sept. 9-15, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced today.

Silvestri, a native of Terra Linda, Calif., helped extend the Sun Devils' unbeaten streak to three after shutting out both Baylor and the seventh-ranked Texas Longhorns on the road. After holding Baylor and a Texas team, who came into to the match averaging 2.6 goals per game, scoreless, Silvestri now ranks fourth on ASU's all-time shutouts list with nine.

Since missing the first three games of the season because of injury, Silvestri has tallied 12 saves and only allowed one goal in four games. She is currently ranked seventh in the nation with a .237 goals against average.

This is Silvestri's first player of the week honor and the 10th for Arizona State all-time.
